Deepika Padukone is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful actresses of Bollywood. She entered the film industry in 2006 and has now made her way to the list of one of the highest paid actresses in B-town. Whether it was acing the Kathak steps in ‘Bajirao Mastani’ or getting into character for ‘Padmaavat’, Deepika Padukone has done full justice and it was a delight to watch her on celluloid.

It’s been over 10 years now since Deepika has been creating magic on the silver screen. Deepika Padukone has been appointed as the new chairperson of MAMI (The Mumbai Academy of the Moving Image). The actress has replaced Aamir Khan’s wife Kiran Rao who has chaired the academy for four years.

While talking to Mid-Day, the ‘Padmaavat’ actress expressed her happiness. She said, “It’s an absolute honour and a huge responsibility. I believe in MAMI’s vision and we are committed towards creating a community that cinema lovers and creators of a film passionate nation like ours truly deserve.”

On the other hand, Kiran Rao said that she is looking forward to supporting Deepika on her new journey. “It has been my privilege and pleasure to work as part of the core team of MAMI, and after four years as Chairperson of the Academy, I am delighted to welcome one of India’s most loved film stars, Deepika as the new Chairperson,” she said.
